It has been 40 years since "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" was released, and its popularity is still blowing like a holy hand grenade.

In honor of the anniversary, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin attended a special screening of the movie at the Tribeca Film Festival, and even joined John Oliver for a Q&A. After being asked why they think the film has held up all these years, Palin reportedly told Oliver because it's "just f***ing great."

For those of you who couldn't attend, here is what the reunion looked like:
